So...anyone trying out EC? Full time/part time? Questions? If you are partenered, is your DP supportive?
I have been using a cueing sound of 'pssssss' with Liana (she's 7.5 wks) every time I know she's peeing for weeks. She has a very identifiable (to me at least!!) pee face and pee sound. She doesn't like being wet at all so she has typically been changed within moments of eliminating (we're CDing). She also has been dry at night for at least 3 weeks, maybe longer (night for us is when we all go to sleep around 11 -me, DD1, Liana, and DH- until Liana first rouses anywhere from 6-9 am. She feeds within there but is doing so in a sleepwalking kind of way, and hasn't been peeing until she's actually awake and looking around). She, like my older daughter did, retains her poop for days (no worries, she's not constipated/uncomfortable/gassy) but seems to only poop in the midst of a feed...so I have absolutely NO ideas there for how to catch those!!
I decided to try holding her over a baby potty and cueing her with our sound today when she woke up (dry) and she went pee!!! Yay!!! DH held her up waaaaaay early on over a prefold and she peed and pooped that way and she has peed plenty at changing time but this was our first intentional EC try/catch.
I haven't read any books yet but have one on order, I've just read bits here and there off forums and blogs. I don't have any issues with the theory, I'm just not sure how effective I'm going to be at this if I have her in a CD all the time (and she gets cold when naked or we are often not home for hours at a time). I don't get any warning before she pees/poops, just the actual face/sound she makes *when* she goes...so the idea of anticipating them while trying to take care of my older child's needs is daunting.
